On May 2, Rep. Earl Blumenauer and Sen. Gordon Smith will hold a public forum on trade and globalization. This is the first -- and possibly lastóchance to voice opposition to CAFTA directly to our elected representatives before Congress votes on it.
Portland JWJ will rally before the forum with organized labor, environmental groups, and small farmers to send a positive message to our Reps. in DC: "We CAN legislate trade deals that respect workers' rights and protect the environment, but CAFTA doesn't cut it. Vote No on CAFTA!"
Be there at 8:30am... as you can see, these politicians REALLY want to hear the public voice in all of this... that's why they put it at 9 am on a Monday morning...
